The Last Sign

Synopsis: Andie MacDowell portrays a woman who is tormented by the ghost of her abusive, alcoholic husband. She must come to terms with the past if she is to find peace and love. Samuel le Bihan is a French engineer who she finds renewed love with and Tim Roth plays her deceased husband who shows us that hate can live on after death. Perhaps forgiveness is the only way to overcome the demons that haunt us from the grave.

Looking back now...

I see how easy was to fool myself

thinking everything

So much pain for nothing.

We were taken by surprise.

We like to think that bad things

can only happen to

After you died Jeremy...

I thought we may find peace

in our lives again.

But death is not always as final

as sometimes we think it

- Yes?

- Mrs. Macfarlane?

- We're from the real state.

- Just a second, I'll get the key.

I'm so sorry, I can't find the keys.

- Can we take a look from the outside?

- Yes. Of course.

- Will you allow access to the garden?

- It's a standard

I suppose it covers

all possible options.

It's just that I have children.

I'll have a look at the back.

Excuse me.

I can't do it anymore.

The kids and I are leaving.

You want to leave me?

- Mrs. Macfarlane?

- Location is perfect.

Actually, we might have someone.

Oh, so soon!

A french engineer

with excellent credencials.

Came to work at a project.

It'll be a short-term contract.

I don't know about that.

That way we can get you

a much higher price.

Well, I'll have to think about it.

Mrs. Macfarlane?

Please, give us a call

when you reach a decision.

- I appreciate it.

- Thank you.

Good bye.

Why did you do that for?

It's crappy stuff!

No, it's not.


Please, girls.

It's dinner time.

Come on! It's dinner!

OK, we're coming.

It's my stereo.

You got rollerblades for Christmas.

I wanted a stereo too.

Come on, you two.

Why can't you just share?

She always wants what's mine.

Don't you dare.


Come on,

let's just have a nice dinner.

They're on sale at the mall.

I saw them.


These are difficult times...

You've got to stick to our budget.


Beautiful words spoken in gest.

Gest, what's that?

How many times have I told you

don't have a license for that

I stand on the trail. See?

Good, then go wash up.

Before or after dinner?

Don't push me.


Eight is my lucky number.

You can write it without even taking

your pen off the paper.

I think we should get married

on the eighth.

Why the eighth?

It's the infinite number.


Goes on forever...

Come on, let's go kids!

Seat belts.

I love you.

Have a good day.

- Temperature?

- Regular.

- Gage?

- Level.

Don't forget it.

- Excuse me?

- Your ring.


I don't think we've met.

You're Kathy Macfarlane,

lab seven...

you've been here almost a month.

I'm Dora.

Human Resources.

I'd say you're either Cancer or Leo.

I'm a Cancer, actually.

I thought too.

Because you're the only person...

who had the courage

to eat the Junior Melt on thursday.

It's not that bad, really.


Tell me that in a month.

- Nice to meet you.

- You too.

There's no much I can do.

You understand that, if you don't

make these payments

you'll risk your possession.

Yes, but I'm back at work now...

and I intend to rent

my late husband's medical clinic.

Let me see.

I might be able to give you a month.

Mrs. Macfarlane?


A month extension.

This is the best I can do.

I see. Well, thank you.

It started acting up this morning.

It's the first time it's ever

Thank you.

Hello, there.

Excuse me.

I didn't mean to scare you.

Mrs. Macfarlane?

- Yes?

- I'm your new tenant.

Marc Larrieu

It's a pleasure to meet you.

I'm sorry.

I just wasn't expecting you.

I came early and your sister

gave me the keys.

- I hope it's OK?

- No, it's fine.

By they way, I've met your kids.

They're great.

If you prefer,

I can come back tomorrow.

No, it's fine.

Is everything OK?

Do you need anything?

Everything is perfect.

Have a good night.

Good night.

Hi, mom.

Oh, my Goodness!

Why are you home so late?

I was so busy at the lab.

- I'll catch your plate.

- Thank you.

Have you met your new neighbour?


- He seems to be a good guy.

- Maybe.

I'm starting to have

second thoughts about renting there.

No, Kathy, it's a good thing.

Now you're going to have

some close company.

Exactly, that's what bothers me.

Who is it?


Probably wrong number.

Go back to bed.

What's that?

Your dad's old shoes.

Just a small junk.

Come on Isabel, we're late.

We're coming.

- Good morning, everybody.

- Good morning.

Hurry up, guys.

We're going to miss the bus.

- Hi, there.

- Hi.

See you later, Isabel.

- Do you mind if I sit down here?

- Of course not.

- You are not having the tune melt.

- I took your advice.

- Trouble at the bank?

- Just a little.

You're a widow, aren't you?

Yes, I am.

You think about him all the time,

don't you?

The first time I saw you,

I knew we had something in

My peer left this Earth

about 15 years ago...

and I thought I'd go crazy!

I realized he was watching out for me.

He was talking to me.

I talked back! Why not?

We do that all the time.

I'm throwing myself

a birthday party on saturday...

so, why don't you...

just come and let your hair down?

I'm not much of a party person.

It's going to be 58,

in case you were wondering.

I look to be 54, but I'll be 58.

No excuses, no presents.


I swear...

I swear...

no more drinking.

Any drop.

Never again.

They all died, Kathy.

All these beautiful kids.

They all died.

There was nothing I could do.

I'm sorry.

We can't live like this anymore.

That was good.

That was really good.

I'm telling you.

The man's party went all night long.

You should have joined them

instead of playing alone.

I'm telling you Kathy,

you got to start moving on.

I'm trying, Isabel. But I can't.

It's like Jeremy were still here,

I'm afraid I'm going to wake

and find him on the couch

who knows in what state.

He really put you through hell,

didn't he?

I'm still at it.

It's just like him.

His last selfish gesture.

Leaving us right when the kids

needed him most.

But they got you.

And they're wonderful kids.

Who'd want to be one of them?

No father and a histerical mother.

You're a great mom.

And they're very lucky to have you.

This is a tooth of luck...

and this will help you

ward off evil spirit.

We could all use one of those.

Isn't that gorgeous?

- Oh, darling, I didn't get you a drink!

- I'm fine.

No, what a bad hostess.

Come on.

Let's get you all set up, loosing

you up and put you in a party

Hey, Dora!

Ed, you look gorgeous in pink!

Thank you.

Darling, this is Kathy.

Could you get her a drink?

Just a glass of water would be great.

Water, so, the real party!

Ed doesn't drink water.

He's an artist.

Zelda! Oh, my God!

I'll be right back.


That's a great choice.

It's a perfect book for you.

It's not really my kind of thing.

You've dropped your matches here.

That can't be mine, I don't smoke.

Well, I certainly don't smoke and

I've never been to the

Is that a nice hotel?

Yes, it's a very nice hotel.

I get the feeling...

these are definitely your matches.

I tell you what...

This book...

is my gift to you.

Why don't you make yourself

comfortable? Try to absorb it...

and then when you're ready,

come and rejoin the party, OK?
